I think this is a forum bug.

by runescapehackerpro / December 13, 2006 5:12 AM PST

All visited threads with new posts are red. All visited threads with no new posts are white. If I make a new post, the thread is red. I think it should be white, because I have already read the message that I posted.

Is it just me or is this a bug?

Undocumented feature

It reminds you to read your own posts in the context of the thread...

It's not perfect, but if you "Return to discussion" after posting, that does count as reading the post and then it will be white. I would classify it as a minor annoyance.

It isn't really either. It has bugs me also. But it's more a feature problem rather than a bug. I think of a bug as something that just doesn't work. Technically speaking you haven't read the actual post, which is why it shows up red. I find myself after ever post going back and opening up the thread just to clear the red.

So yes and no.

(NT) I do a lot of thread clearing myself.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
